In November of 2020, Canadian National unveiled six (6) Heritage Units to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of its Initial Public Offering (IPO) on the US Stock Exchange. Four (4) of the six Heritage Units are ET44 “Tier 4” GEVOs which wear decorative paint schemes as a nod to CN’s predecessor railroads. In addition to the Heritage Units, CN also unveiled two “Veterans” locomotives in a special camouflage scheme honoring both Canadian and American Veterans. Today, CN’s specially painted Tier 4 GEVOs can be seen earning revenue for the Class I Railroad in both the US and Canada.
